Mark Winterbottom is the latest Australian driver to sign-up for the Brazilian Stock Car Series’ two-driver event at Interlagos next month.

The Ford Performance Racing star will partner local driver Sergio Jimenez in one of Voxx Racing’s Peugeot 408-bodied cars.

FPR co-driver Dean Canto is already confirmed to partner former V8 Supercars driver turned Brazilian Stock Car regular Max Wilson in a Chevrolet.

Other locals scheduled to take part include Rubens Barrichello, Nelson Piquet Jr, Riccardo Zonta, Antonio Pizzonia and Augusto Farfus.

The event race will mark Winterbottom’s first competitive foray overseas.

“It’s a great opportunity to test my skills against some of the worlds best drivers and gain more experience,” said Winterbottom of the drive.

The March 22-23 race date falls on the weekend between Winterbottom’s Albert Park and Symmons Plains V8 Supercars commitments.
